Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Refused to Campaign for Bernie Sanders Over Joe Rogan Endorsement

AOC fell out with Sanders.

New reporting from the Huffington Post indicates that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has had a falling out of sorts with the Bernie Sanders campaign, refusing to campaign for the democratic socialist for a time. Ocasio-Cortez was reportedly annoyed that Sanders accepted the endorsement of podcaster Joe Rogan.

Rogan is known for occasional off-color and politically incorrect jokes. This reputation was apparently enough for Ocasio-Cortez to distance herself from the Sanders campaign, after having endorsed Bernie for President in October.

Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir is said to have requested that Ocasio-Cortez campaign aggressively in support of Sanders after the Iowa caucus in New Hampshire. The New York freshman Congresswoman is said to have rebuffed the requests until a few days before the primary vote.

A Sanders campaign source was quoted as saying that “it was like pulling teeth to get her to New Hampshire.

Ocasio-Cortez is then said to have declined several opportunities to campaign on behalf of Sanders in Nevada, South Carolina, and the following Super Tuesday states in which the Sanders campaign was resoundingly defeated by Joe Biden, perhaps losing its opportunity to win the Democratic primary.

This sort of political puritanism shows a weakness of the political left, particularly that of Bernie Sanders’ progressive wing of the Democratic Party. If an endorsement from the most popular podcaster in America is enough to alienate a major campaign surrogate, then the left isn’t really prepared to defeat the Democratic establishment.

The Left specializes in wielding cultural and institutional power, as opposed to winning control of public opinion. A serious political movement would wholly embrace the endorsement of Rogan, who quite literally has one of the most powerful platforms in the United States.

Conservatives should be prescient that their political opponents’ tendency towards thought-policing is a serious weakness.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time

The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.

Published

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.

She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.

“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.

“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.

Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.

“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.

Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.

“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.

President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
